A news feed aggregator is one of the easiest ways of packing
your Joomla site with free, high quality content. You can pick syndicated
information on just about any topic you can think of and serve it up to your
users without writing a word, editing a comma or changing a paragraph.
So if you've got a Joomla magazine about online advertising,
for example, you could sign up to a bunch of RSS feeds on your topic and use
your news feed aggregator to serve them right to your users.
They get the news they want in one place; you get a site
stuffed with constantly updated content.
It's like letting the Web do all the writing work for you.
One of the most popular Joomla news aggregators is Feed Gator. It's very
easy to use, supports a bunch of different RSS systems, and best of all, it can
display content as a blog. Users can add their comments, giving your site a
live debate. If that sounds like the sort of thing your site could use, you can
download Feed Gator from http://extensions.joomla.org/
and start subscribing.
